Safety Academy

The AWB CompWise Retro program offers courses for safety and non-safety professionals who wish to increase their safety knowledge and effectiveness in developing and administering safety programs with their company.  The Safety Academy provides you with access to a wide range of topics and tools to help you run a successful safety program.

Seven core classes and many different electives are offered each year. Participants who complete all seven core classes and five of the electives will receive a “Certified Safety Coordinator” certificate.

Feedback from Safety Academy participants includes:  

“The safety classes provided me with the skills and resources to be proactive with safety issues at my plant.  The instruction and networking with others was very rewarding.”

“If you put to use what you learn at the Safety Academy, you will have a safer workplace.  The instruction is first rate, easy to understand, even easier to put into action and, most importantly, IT WORKS!”

“The program is very useful.  I can take the material and use it the same day.  There is an abundance of resources and sharing of ideas.”

“The time invested in the program was well spent and my personal knowledge and belief in our company’s strong Safety Program has been firmly enhanced.”

“It totally changed the way I look at safety.  It was enlightening, fun and informative and I’d highly recommend it to any HR or safety professional.”

For your convenience, Safety Academy classes are now offered online in WebEx format. Most classes are an hour and a half in duration. The course overview is available here. The schedule is available here. A link to register for the classes is on the Safety Academy Calendar.
